The Wine King Malbec... A wine with its own swagger

From the stony foothills of the Andes where the sun fills the sky over the vast landscape, a wine is born fit for royalty. Its natural birthright, King Malbec rules Mendoza; deeply red with violet hues and aromas of ripe red fruits, cassis, and peppers. Sweet on the palate, spicy, and a long finish with a unique aftertaste embodies the true spirit of Malbec from Argentina.

On Point Pinot Noir, Christinna's Cuvee
Anderson Valley, California

Dark garnet in the glass. Notes of earth, cherry and spice abound. Strawberry, red cherry and spice flavors are complex and lingering. Bright acidity and mineral notes on the finish. Well balanced and elegant. ~ 92 points Wine Enthusiast

A very beautiful wine that we are happy to have on our shelves at Liquor World.

Screen Door Cellars Rose of Pinot Noir
Russian River Valley, California

Screen Door Cellars creates small, handcrafted lots of ultra-premium wines by partnering with the finest growers in the Russian River Valley.

A beautiful, bright salmon color seduces you from the glass while rich fruit and floral notes entice your senses. Pomegranate, raspberry, and strawberry notes are lifted on top of a subtle caramel from the barrel aging. Hints of honeysuckle and jasmine dance in the glass. Rich juicy fruits are balanced with mouth watering acidity.

Huntaway Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough, New Zealand

Since it’s launch in 1996, Huntaway Reserve has garnered critical acclaim, numerous awards, and a fine reputation for premium quality. The Huntaway Reserve winemakers go to great lengths searching for the best fruit in order to ensure the elegance and approachability of their range of wines.

This is an intensely aromatic wine with abundant blackcurrant and gooseberry fruit flavors. The generous palate weight ensures versatility when paired with food.

Ca’ Marcanada Promis Toscana

The proprietary name Promis (pronounced proh-MEESS) was created by the Gaja family to denote commitment, expectation, fulfillment, and hope... the promise of quality and the reward of diligence and excellence. The grapes are grown in the terre brune (rich, dark soils) which consist primarily of loam and clay. The climate – hot summer days, freshened by brisk sea air and cool nights – is ideal for the grapes grown here. Juiciness and concentration are the features of the vintage which shows elegance and drinkability. Promis offers the elegance and suppleness of Merlot and Syrah, complemented by the vibrant structure of Sangiovese, Tuscany’s emblematic grape. This wine drinks well at an early age.

Color: Deep garnet color
Aroma: The nose is rich with notes of licorice, sage and thyme. Its specific Mediterranean character is balanced with intense aromas of well-ripe small dark berries.
Tasting notes: A medium bodied wine with silky tannins and refreshing acidity. It opens with sweet and juicy notes of blackberry and black cherry, and then it ends with a pleasant salty and savory hint.

Olema Pinot Noir
Sonoma County, California

This is a silky smooth Pinot Noir showcasing the best of Sonoma County winemaking from a legendary vintage. The wine is a blend of Russian River Valley, Sonoma Coast and Sonoma County Pinot Noir from premier vineyards. Deliciously drinkable, it features the classic Russian River Valley characteristics of perfumed aromas and bright focused cherry flavors, framed by delicate tannins.

A burst of fresh black cherry, ripe strawberry and cola spice on the nose lead to deep flavors of red fruits with hints of earth, warm spice and violets. Supple tannins are balanced by exuberant acidity on a long finish.

Olema Cabernet Sauvignon
Sonoma County, California

The Olema Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes hand selected off vineyards in Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys in Sonoma County. This well-balanced wine features layers of juicy red and black fruit framed by soft tannins.

This complex and vibrant Cabernet displays a deep purple color and opens with aromas of black cherry, pomegranate, and tobacco. A rich fruit core on the palate exhibits hints of mocha, vanilla and pie spice, with chewy tannins and a long finish.
Blend: 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petite Syrah
Barrel Aging: Aged in 60% new French oak barrels, 16 months

Nik Weis Kabinett

This is racy and pure, featuring intense minerality to the green apple, peach and Bosc pear flavors. Very lithe midpalate, with a steely finish that offers notes of white stone and dried herbs. Drink now through 2022. 500 cases made. ~ 91 pts.Wine Spectator: Dec 31, 2016

Sourced from the Zickelgarten parcel, the 2015 Bockstein Kabinett (AP 28 16) opens with a bright, ripe and remarkably dense Riesling bouquet with floral and herbal aromas. Sweet and racy-piquant on the palate, this is a juicy, round and lush yet elegant Kabinett with a good aromatic finish. I find it pretty sweet and concentrated, though, but I would be more stimulated with a more dry version. ~ 90 pts.Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate: 28th Apr 2017

Earth Wise Red Wine Blend
Sustainably Farmed, Certified Organic

Just ahead of Earth Day 2017, Manteca, California-based winemaker Delicato Family Vineyards introduced its Earth Wise Vineyards Red Wine Blend, the family-run firm's first 3-liter bag-in-box wine made from organically grown grapes from Spain. The blend is certified organic by the California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF). The grapes come from organic vineyards primarily in Spain's La Mancha region.

Delicato's first release of the Earth Wise Vineyards Red Blend is touted as "a soft and fruit forward blend of Syrah, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Garnacha Tintorera." The Earth Wise Vineyards package prominently features the CCOF label and other iconography to signal its environmentally sustainable and organic status, with 100 percent recyclable packaging.

Boen Pinot Noir
Sonoma County

Deep, dark ruby-red in color. On the nose aromas of bright Bing cherry, dark chocolate, coconut, black licorice, a hint of toast, smoked meat, blueberry and barrel spice. Chocolate and black licorice carry thorugh on the palate. Dried strawberry flavors with hints of cranberry and prune. Fresh, bright acidity. A dustiness or earthiness and very fine and persistent tannins.

A beautiful wine to sip by the pool or on the deck with light snacks, the 2015 Böen Pinot Noir appears to be the perfect casual drinking wine. Winemaker Joseph J. Wagner—cognizant of the i-generation wine and what they are looking for in their wines—has produced a well-balanced, yet relaxed style of wine that be enjoyed with or without food. Drinks well now. (Tasted: September 21, 2016, San Francisco, CA) ~ WW 90, Wilfred Wong of

Lolea # 3

A new concept in cocktails where sparkling Spumante white wine is enhanced with elderberry flowers and wild apples to add fruity and dry overtones with carbonation.

Clear and brilliant with golden shades, background hints of green give it a youthful character and lead you to a world of herbal and fruity aromas, which blend with the Macabeo and Chardonnary tones of the wine to evoke the distinctive character of Cava sparkling wines. A well balanced and cheerful Brut Sangria whose mild taste on the palate comes from the reduction of the wine, with green apple, cinnamon and Elderberry flowers which add a depth and character that show its playful nature. The result is a fresh tart flavor, slightly sweet at the start and with fine persistent bubbles, which leaves an agreeable taste in the mouth full of nuances which develops into a drier sensation, and finishes with a fresh aftertaste combined with the delicious lingering flavor of the aromas.

Lagunitas "Born Yestereday” Pale Ale

An UnFiltered Born Again Pale Ale for all the wet hop lovers!

We’ve discovered that the Lagunitas brewers are part time alchemists... they’ve figured out how to keep wet hops wet all year long! Born Again Yesterday Pale Ale features a delicious concoction of wet hops, reborn and unfiltered into Born Yesterday Pale Ale.

More about the wet hops: To figure out this brand new wet hop preservation process, Lagunitas had to forget everything that they already knew about how hops are processed and preserved.

This new proprietary process involves a lot of time and money, and even more thinking about hops and freshness in new ways. From all of this, they found a new way to preserve the hops, fresh from the Yakima Valley trellises, first born during harvest season into the Born Yesterday last fall, and reborn into this scary new next step, the Born Again Yesterday Pale Ale, six months later, to the beer in your hands today. 7.0% ABV, High IBUs

Founders Harvest Ale

Each fall, Founders' brewhouse looks more like a greenhouse as thousands of pounds of wet hop cones arrive within hours of being picked by some of their favorite local hop growers. Acting quickly, they then load up these wet hops into what will become Harvest Ale – an impossibly aromatic and bright IPA bursting with fresh pine, melon and citrus notes. Our ode to the beauty that is the wet, American hop. 7.6% ABV, 70 IBUs

Sierra Nevada Hemisphere
The original wet hop IPA

Northern Hemisphere was the first wet hop ale and it inspired the wet hop craze in America. Wet—undried—hops go straight from the fields into their kettles within 24 hours. Because hops are incredibly perishable, using hops wet preserves all of the precious oils and resins for a unique drinking experience as evidenced by the intense herbal green flavors and citrus-like and floral aromas. 6.7% ABV, 67 IBUs

Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale

Festive fresh hop holiday fun. The start of Celebration season is a festive event. Sierra Nevada can’t start brewing until the first fresh hops have arrived, but once they have the season is officially under way! First brewed in 1981, Celebration Ale is one of the earliest examples of an American-style IPA and one of the few hop-forward holiday beers. Famous for its intense citrus and pine aromas, Celebration is bold and intense, featuring Cascade, Centennial and Chinook hops—honoring everything they have at Sierra Nevada. 6.8% ABV, 65 IBUs

Boulevard Snow and Tell
Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy

A perfect winter beer for curling up by the fireplace, this malt blanket features prominent toffee and caramel notes with just a hint of smoked malt. A subtle spiciness is provided by hopping with Magnum, Chinook and Styrian Goldings. 6.3% ABV, 28 IBUs


Bentonville Brewing
NEW! to arrive @ LW on Nov 1

Homewrecker India Pale Ale

A beer for the hop lovers. With Citra dominating aromas and a great head retention, this brew is sure to please. They wanted to keep some of the sweet honey flavors and not dry it out completely like the norm. The hop taste comes on the front end and leaves you with a crisp, clean finish. 7.5% ABV, 80 IBUs

Soul Shine Kolsch

This easy going ale is their take on a traditional German style. Bready malt, yeast, and crisp noble hops are what this beer is all about. If you’re not sure where to start, look no further. 5.1% ABV, 19 IBUs
